What Is a Double Wide Manufactured Home?
Double wide houses are considerably larger than single wide houses, at a size of 1500 square feet and above. However, the size of a double wide home can vary greatly in measurement and spaciousness based on layout and design.
Our double wide manufactured homes for sale in Grand Rapids are available with layouts that exceed 2000 square feet. They consist of two bathrooms and three to four bedrooms. The space offered by a double wide is beneficial for families with multiple children, or those who would like extra space for an art studio, home office, workout space, home theater, playroom, or guest room.

Double Wide Home Features
The standard double wide manufactured home consists of two bathrooms and typically three bedrooms, but that doesn’t have to be the limit. You can create more bedrooms or bathrooms with custom layouts, such as a home with three bathrooms and five bedrooms.
A major perk of double wide homes is that they tend to look a bit more like traditionally built houses, and can have multiple floors. Their build is wider, giving a shorter and more sprawled-out appearance. Double wide houses are also more customizable, as additional rooms give way to more design possibilities.
